camped out till 4,o’clock in the

When Colonel Ifqtker’s California
regiment arrived fffstin Philadelphia
from their camp iiadSew Tork, it was
halted after a short street parado.—f
Arms were stackcdjand the hot and!
wearied heroes allqffed several .hours
to rest, ns the'day «vas Intensely op
pressive; Jit is i,.-well-known fact
that the [California was com
posed, with but ■ mW. exceptions, of
Philadelphians, a jmmbcr of whom
theflutlior was welEacquainted with.
Seeing so many fulmar laces, 1 asked
if there wefejahy at all:
in' the regiment, aid in answer was
introduced to a firasS manly looking
.fellow, who was putting his way past
at the moment, ij Wfth- him I bad a'
yoty long and plea«ta*gMeiiationi:
during which! thar&is^fath
er had known Colonel Baker whena

in his power to do film some acts of
j.jkindncss for Which ! ihp nrateful hero
subsequently repaid; him. ' The
I son, whose name is Btecs, or Stetson;
for something like happening to
jbe ir Philadelphia, and almost adpr
jing Baker, was arttpng the foreihosl
Ito join, his father’Syhenefnctor when
[the latter announced his- intention of
j taking the field: Upon the depart

bade the -Californian gopd-bye ; j and
heard no more fromhim until ijecent
ly, whhn happeningftojiave bilsiness
at the Post Office, we again met- Of
course, pftcr the usual salutiPns, the
conversation {naturally turned upon
the 'disastrous; battle of Ball’s Bluff. .
And 'with fdars in'bis Cyes the no
ble follow related thi; mC the particu
lars of the fight, from thejinoraeht the
troops were thrown!across the Poto
mac till Baker fell,i(ind the shrill bu
